Alaia Influence


Hoping to finish my alaia today.  Not surprisingly, everyone who has stopped by while I was working on it has been perplexed beyond belief.  Here are a few rad images of alaias being surfed the way they should.  Let's just hope I can get into waves on mine...

I've been building my Alaia as well - sanding the concave has been taking longer than expected, but so far I'm happy with how everything is turning out. I plan to build at least a few of these. Check out my progress (5 posts so far) at http://bitness.com and please leave a comment. Any pictures of your board? Good luck with it!
